My EIZO T561 CRT Monitor has a number of surface scratches on it. Could anyone recommend a home remedy to remove these scratches. Thanks!

Turtle Wax 'Super Glass Polish' from a car accessory shop at £2.99. It's meant for car windscreens and claims to remove light scratches.

Will this not affect the anti-glare coating on the screen?

Good point Djohn. I'd forgotten about that.

I don't know as to what effect this would have, and if the coating is removed, will this be preferable to looking at the scratches? j.

Although the screen is scratched it may prove tough to remove the rest of the coating. A lighly tinted glass anti-reflective screen does help to mask screen marks to some extent.

Jeweller's rouge, although haven't used it on monitor screens have used it on TV screens with some success.

Might help

I wonder if a CD scratch repair solution might work click here

My Mum swears by Brasso and old newspaper.

She doesn't own a computer.

And she isn't allowed in the same postcode as mine!!!

Sorry for being ignorant but are you saying that I should try Brasso or Jeweller' Rouge?
